A mother of three in Nashville, Tennessee has been left paralyzed and unable walk by her second doze of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, with doctors unsure when she will regain the use of her legs.
Brandy Parker McFadden first noticed an “unusual sensation” in her legs, when then led “into a horrible neck pain, and it just kept getting worse and worse.”
Husband James Mcfadden stated, “She was screaming in pain. She is one that is pretty stoic. That’s what created the sense of urgency.”
Brandy Parker-McFadden was then taken to the hospital, where doctors began panicking. “I woke up. I can’t move my arms. I can’t move my legs. So, he’s freaking out. The doctors are panicking,” Brandy Parker-McFadden said.
“I’m holding her hand, and her hand is limp throughout the whole thing while she’s screaming in pain, and all the test results are coming back negative,” James McFadden recalled.
Brandy Parker-McFadden’s medical records from the Vanderbilt hospital state, “All of these symptoms are temporally related to the COVID vaccine, raising concern for a vaccine reaction which has been reported to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) for investigation.”
After spending ten days in the hospital, Parker-McFadden has regained the wiggle her toes and move her toes, and hopes to walk again someday with the aid of intensive physical therapy.
A statement sent to WKRN News 2 by Pfizer following the incident read in part, “To date, more than 200 million people around the world have been vaccinated with our vaccine. It is important to note that serious adverse events that are unrelated to the vaccine are unfortunately likely to occur at a similar rate as they would in the general population.”
As National File reported earlier this week, mixed-martial arts fighter Craig Jones was left unable to train by a large amount of fluid buildup in his stomach after taking the COVID vaccine.
